Does anyone know if kribs and large rainbow fish will get on with Amano shrimps or will they end up as shrimp cocktail?

I had small rainbows with shrimp, once upon a blue moon.
Even small rainbows like mine, preacox, ate the whole job lot.

I think any fish that can fit the shrimp in their mouths will eat shrimp. After all most of the fish we keep eat a diet of largely aquatic invertebrates in the wild. So 5" fish with ordinary mouths will polish off every one they can catch I would imagine.
